In the 1900 Ohio County Census I find the following:
419-421
Silas Renfrow head b. Dec 1868 age 32
Nancy wife b. Nov 1873 age 26
Bell dau b. Nov 1892 age 9
Bertha dau b. May 1894 age 6
Shelly B. son b. June 1899 age 11/12

Then next house hold:
420-422
Silas Renfrow head b. Dec 1847 age looks like 37 must be wrong.
Lenora A. wife b. Oct 1865 age 26
Hardin A. son b. Nov 1885 age 15
James E. son b. Oct 1887 age 13
Otis C. son b. June 1889 age 11
Lenerd son b. Aug 1892 age 8
Henry son b. June 1897 age 3
Lenory dau b. Nov 1899

Is the second Silas Renfrow age correct, and if so who was his parents. Also the scond Silas was listed in the 1910 census as 55 which would put 1855 as birth date.

Any ideas?

Billy,

The second Silas Renfrow was the son of Bryant Renfrow and Hannah Bratcher. He was born May 20, 1861. This is found in the 1861 birth index for Grayson County.

He has a delayed death certificate and it shows his birth date as May 5, 1861. It doesn't give the day of death but it appears that he died around Feb 24, 1923. The informant was his daughter Mrs. Birch (Lenora) Shields.

The first Silas you have, was the son of John Renfrow and Mary Ann Daugherty.

hope this helps,
Betsy

Thanks to every one for their information. I see where some people have Silas H. Renfrow married to both Lenora and Nancy. After looking at the census I thought that was wrong. Thanks again
